LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Seven Arts Entertainment Inc. (OTCQB: SAPX) ("Seven Arts" or the "Company") reaffirmed today that it will issue one warrant ("Warrants") for each ten shares of its common stock (calculated immediately prior to the Company's reverse split on September 4, 2012) as a dividend to stockholders who owned shares of common stock on August 31, 2012, which serves as the record date. The Warrants will expire on June 30, 2014 and will be exercisable at $.03. The Warrants, as modified, replace the warrants preliminarily described by the Company in its September 4, 2012, press release and represent substantially improved terms over the prior announced terms. The Company plans to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the near term, which, when effective, will permit public trading of the common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The Warrants themselves will not be transferrable or tradable and will be distributed to stockholders and become exercisable upon the effectiveness of such registration statement. The Company will not issue fractional warrants or pay cash in lieu thereof and will round all fractions down to the next lower ten pre-split shares.
Chief Executive Officer Peter Hoffman stated, "We are pleased to distribute to our loyal stockholders a warrant dividend exercisable at $.03. This dividend, we hope, will permit our stockholders to participate in what we believe will be the continued growth of the Company as we execute our announced business plan for this year and to offset in part the losses arising after the Company's reverse split on September 4, 2012 due to substantial short selling, as previously announced."
